Emma - DVD/Blu-ray Preview

Emma

Preview by Jack Foley

JANE Austen’s nineteenth-century comedy on misguided matchmaking and romantic mishaps gets a refreshing update in the heart-warming and witty Emma, available on Digital now and on Blu-ray™ and DVD from June 22, 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Hailed as “a decadent, fondant-swaddled delight” (Independent), the wickedly funny film chronicles the privileged but well-meaning young Emma Woodhouse (The Witch and Thoroughbreds’ Anya Taylor-Joy).

A vibrant visual treat, Emma is “absolutely stunning from start to finish” (Marie Claire), and features exclusive, never-before-seen bonus content including feature commentary with Director and Screenwriter, deleted scenes, gag reel, and behind-the-scene featurettes with the cast and crew whisking audiences away to the world of our mischievous heroine and the everlasting story of self discovery.

Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) is a restless “queen bee” without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realise the love that has been there all along.

Autumn de Wilde’s feature debut Emma is “an absolute triumph” (SAGA Magazine) and “a charming, amusing and picture-perfect adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic tale” (Daily Mirror) featuring a fresh and razor-sharp screenplay by Man Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton (The Luminaries) that stays true to Austen’s endearing novel and brings to life the English Countryside in 1815.

With an exceptional ensemble cast lead by Taylor-Joy Emma is rounded out by Johnny Flynn (Beast), Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Series), Mia Goth (Suspiria), Josh O’ Connor (The Crown), Miranda Hart (Spy, Call the Midwife), Callum Turner (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, War & Peace), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education), Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Rupert Graves (Sherlock, A Room with a View) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones).

Accompanied by a joyous and energetic score by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and David Schweitzer, Emma is a stunning new vision of the ground-breaking literary classic on love and redemption. The theatrical version of the film is currently available for early viewing on a wide variety of popular on-demand services as a premium rental offering.
